Galileo Callisto 616 Hardware

The Galileo Callisto 616 features six analog


inputs with balanced XLR connectors and
state-of-the-art A/D converters operating
at 24‑bit resolution with a 96 kHz sample
rate. The inputs can be individually
switched to operate as stereo AES/EBU
digital inputs, accepting sample rates up
to 96 kHz. Because internal processing
is performed at 96 kHz with 32‑bit vector
floating point, source signals with lower
sample rates are upsampled using advanced
hardware sample rate converters. The six
input channels can be configured in pairs to
receive a combination of analog and digital
sources.

The 16 analog outputs feature balanced


XLR connectors with high-resolution
96 kHz, 24‑bit D/A converters, and a robust Galileo Callisto 616 Front and Rear Panels
